Elodie is a photographer from France. Her use of dim lighting is perfect for creating an intimate atmosphere. The simplicity of her photos adds a dreamy element that enriches her subject's soft features. So often I feel that people are so used to their features that they cannot even fathom how beautiful they are to a stranger. This shoot is the epitome of less is more. There is something about the minimalism and unadulterated purity that creates a mysterious vibe. I cannot tell if the subject is simply dancing in a daydream or if she's carrying the weight of the world.
I find myself filled with wanderlust when scrolling through these exquisite pictures. It makes me want to drop everything and escape to Paris. C'est la vie.
From the Photographer | I work with natural light and I like to keep my photos simple and natural in my editing process. Concerning my equipment I have a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 50mm 1.4 and 35mm 1.4 and also the Lensbaby products (80mm 2.8 and 35mm 2.8 for a tilt shift effect). I read a lot of articles about where you can find your inspiration as a photographer (books, movies…) but most of the time people themselves inspire me with their stories, what they stand for.
